6-Speed Automatic Transmission Tuning Guide


The Tuning School's 6-Speed Automatic Transmission Tuning Guide will give you the transmission performance you always wanted it to be, with an easy step-by-step method you can follow. You can make the transmission shift on time, and as firm as you want - the difference is night and day!

Several students have already seen improved performance from following these easy steps. One student with a 2009 G8 GT saw a 0.3 second ET improvement with these changes. A customer commented on experiencing tire-barking improvements that they never thought possible. This tuning guide has been crafted through months of research and thousands of development miles on our test vehicles, a 2008 Chevrolet Corvette with the 6-Speed Automatic Transmission and a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT with the 6-Speed Automatic Transmission.

This 20 page guide includes step-by-step instructions with full color photos from HP Tuners VCM Editor screen shots.

Please note that if you have purchased or plan on purchasing The Tuning School Advanced Guide to Tuning GM Vehicles with HP Tuners Software, this material is included with that guide.

Price: $99
